is a pro romney ad talking about romney will do more for the auto industry and accused president obama of shipping thousands of jobs to china. let's take a look. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by the detroit news. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. >> before i get you to comment on it. i'm going to go to the obama ad. it is a response to this ad. obama ad called collapsed. it's a rebutle to this ad. >> when the auto industry faced collapse, mitt romney turned his back. even the conservative detroit news criticized romney for wrongheadedness on the bailout. and now, after romney's false claim of jeep out sourcing to china. >> here's what i want to know. i don't know the answer. and this is a good example. one of them's got to be wrong. who is wrong? >> well , the romney ad is technically true but misleading. one of the things he claims, it goes on to say that chrysler is going to increase production of jeeps in china. and turns out they
's looking a little better. home prices up a little bit. jobs are bumpy and the obama administration seems to be saying that it's not great, but it's better than it was. will that be enough to close the deal? >> well, i will tell you this. it is down to eight states. in the eight states where this will be contested from the independent voter -- they have to ask themselves, it's four more years of slow growth going to get me to where i want to be financially? are we going to unleash the power of the economy that we are holding back, or are we going to be on the tepid look. i think you would say that i can't take another four years. neil: it is interesting when you look at the numbers that it is a lousy lousy recovery. we have gotten so used to this, that even when they are mildly a dismal expectation, we think we have hit a home run and we are happy as can be. >> i think that that is the case. in the beginning he says there are some signs of things getting better. 424 of the 500 s&p 500 companies have reported downward revisions for the fourth-quarter earnings. we have a consumer confidence
